Blekinge Dance Residence 2021

​This year Blekinge Dance residence celebrates 5 years and together with Regionteatern Blekinge Kronoberg we create space for dance to happen! Dans i Blekinge therefore has the opportunity to invite both this year's and last year's artists to participate in: BRÅDJUPA - A dance festival in Blekinge (more information about the festival is coming soon).

This year's theme is Same sea, temporary islands. Throughout the residence, Dance in Blekinge wants artists to make space to ask questions and create dialogue between place and people. The theme is a starting point, we are interested in your concepts and ideas. The participating artists are encouraged to work freely within the themes. We encourage you who are applying to base your application on the theme of the residence, but if you already have an idea of ​​what you want to work on, we would love to hear it and process your application with or without connecting it to the theme.
